our town hall meetings and look at how we are walking people through how we fix medicare and social security and create jobs and reform the tax code, how we have an energy policy and education policy, a trade policy. mitt romney has put out more specifics on how to revive this economy and get people back to work than the incumbent president of the united states has. i hear the handwringerring in washington and washington wants to talk about process. come out into these states with us and see what we are talking about and the forceful case we are making for economic opportunity. see the specific plans we are putting on the table. the bold solutions. mitt romney has never once asked me to temper anything down. he said go out there and sell this. >> chris: you talk about the handwringerring. there was a report this weekend that you have been talking to conservative commentators and trying to get them to stay on board and not to jump ship and get too discouraged but in the course of the conversations you admitted the campaign has made missteps. question, what missteps? >> first of all,
